What is ROOM IN THE INN
ROOM IN THE INN is an initiative that partners with colleges and churches to open up their doors to provide shelter and food for homeless people during the winter months, December 1 – March 31. Each site offers a warm, safe place to sleep, serves three meals (dinner, breakfast and bag lunch) and then returns guests the following morning to uptown Charlotte. The program offers a unique way for people of faith to become directly involved with individuals who are homeless. The basic goal is to keep homeless people from freezing on cold winter nights. A greater goal is to provide a more personal relationship to homeless people, at least for a night, and to foster a deeper understanding of the depth and complexity of the issue.
How you can help
This month (December) we are collecting items to collecting small personal items for people staying at ROOM IN THE INN partner sites such as:
- Toothbrushes / toothpaste
- Wash cloths
- Fruit cups
Just drop it off in the lobby at one of our Sunday gatherings and we’ll take care of the rest.
